Why is cell furrowing important in cell division? If cytokinesis did not occur, what would be the end result?

Summary Introduction

To determine: The importance of cell furrowing in cell division.

Introduction: Cytokinesis is the final event that occurs during the cell division. The formation of a constriction, known as cleavage furrow, marks the first visible sign of cytokinesis.

Explanation

In cell division, cytokinesis is the physical process which ensures that the cytoplasm is equally distributed between the newly formed daughter cells. The division of cytoplasm also ensures that the two newly formed daughter cells are separated from each other and each daughter cell is bound by its own plasma membrane...

Summary Introduction

To determine: The end results in the absence of cytokinesis in the cell cycle.
